  1. In good condition, also including a Black Magic Video Assist Mounting Bracket for the MDR Mount. If you have any questions feel free to reach out. WestoverSteadicam@gmail.com. Located in New York. Asking $2,200 OBO
  2. Ahhh got it, sounds very obvious now, after those 2 wrong spacers I was thinking there would be more contact between the two. Appreciate the response, thanks.
  3. Have you tried switching back to the standard monitor yoke? Not knocking the Skymagic monitor yoke (it makes things much more convenient) but when I use to own it and use it on the zephyr I had to swap back to the regular one for a few shoots as it seems to vibrate somewhat easily.
  4. Selling 2 Brand New GPI PRO Black Canisters, Asking $3,100, OBO. Available for Pickup in New York, Manhattan or Brooklyn. Happy to provide pictures if requested. Email me for details WestoverSteadicam@gmail.com
  5. Given it being a camera for practice cage, a cheap camera - sub $500 was what I was looking for. I'm good now, I've been using a gh5 for that amongst other things. Thank you all for the suggestions. I agree Jerry that the zoom function is pretty clutch to have as well.
  6. Hey all, I have what is similar to the blue mitchell portion of this piece, https://cdn.cvp.com/images/products/altimage/16%2007%2020121342446524800-7900.jpg . I now need to get a pro socket block to attach to it, does anyone know where you can find these / is it best to get it straight from Pro? Thanks!
  7. Looking for a KS-4 kit, with inverter, and mounting ring.
  8. Looking to purchase a zephyr vest for a friend if anyone has one. Thanks.
  9. Cool thanks for the fast response Chris, do you think there will be any problem with the weight of a bigger rig on the zephyr vest? I use to have one when I took the workshop but I can't remember if the piece holding the socket block is metal or plastic. Figure we'll have to get a pro socket block to put on the vest. I'm actually not sure if I can find a zephyr vest anymore either do you know if Tiffen is still selling them / are the Aero 30 vest the same ones?
  10. Hey all, I have a friend whom is a girl and is on the smaller side - around 5'2". She is looking to buy a vest to use to practice/use with my pro rig. She's trying to keep this affordable, so I wanted to know if anyone has used the compact flyer vest (http://www.tiffen.com/displayproduct.html?tablename=steadicam&itemnum=803-7800-01) with a larger rig like a pro cinelive OR has a smaller vest they are looking to sell. Thanks.
  11. Hey all just wondering what you guys have been using for a Practice Cam to use on a weight cage. I've had a cheap camcorder for a year or so that I use with my weight cage but it's pretty terrible and has some weird stabilization compensation that makes the image go out of wack sometimes. Looking to get a better "cheap" camcorder or camera that has some zoom functionality to simulate different focal lengths. I have a small mirror less camera but I'd like something to keep permanently on the weight cage, It's also limited to the 2 primes I have so something with zoom would be great. Thanks.
  12. Recently upgraded to a new rig and am selling my Zephyr. It is in great condition, normal cosmetic wear and tear nothing notable. Sale will include everything that came with original Zephyr including everything pictured, as well as the following extras. Pictures Here - https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8DHoQ-NpQi-SHh3cERIUGNhUzA 1. Tiffen AB Battery Plate (Small Dovetail) (Cost $650). This is a second battery plate that mounts to the bottom of the zephyr, essential for flying larger camera setups like Amira, Alexa Mini, or Red's. 2. SkyMagic Gimbal Grip - (Cost $130) gives the zephyr a larger gimbal handle, some people prefer this. It is reviewed here - http://www.steadicam...ic=19778&page=2 - Retail $130. 3. SkyMagic Monitor Yoke - (Cost $150), which allows you to flip the monitor easier for low mode shooting. Retail $185. http://www.steadicam...showtopic=20074 - The grip and the yoke on the Zephyr in the pics is what this Zephyr looks like if you mount those onto it. 4. Low Mode F-Bracket (Cost $200) - A must if you want to shoot low-mode with the Zephyr. I also am including a second stock monitor mount for if you want to mount a recorder, wireless, or the WHM-BG Horizon Level onto the back as Frederic has in the sky magic threads. Asking $6750. Located in NYC. Send me a PM or Email at Tim.W.Westover@gmail.com If you have any questions feel free to ask.
  13. Second Note: it includes everything that came with the Zephyr as far as power cables go and all included original accessories and weights.
  14. If you are still looking I am selling my Zephyr as I just upgraded to a pro rig. It is in excellent condition, very well taken care of as all my gear is. I was going to list it up this weekend when I had time to take pictures and everything. I am also including the second battery plate from Tiffen which mounts to the bottom of the Sled allowing you to mount (2) Dionic Batteries. This is essential for flying an larger camera like Amira, Alexa Mini, or Red's. Along with that I am including the SkyMagic Gimbal Grip, which gives the zephyr a larger gimbal handle, some people prefer this. It is reviewed here - http://www.steadicamforum.com/index.php?showtopic=19778&page=2 - Retail $130. I am also including a SkyMagic Monitor Yoke, which allows you to flip the monitor easier for low mode shooting. Retail $185. http://www.steadicamforum.com/index.php?showtopic=20074 - He has these mounted on the Zephyr in the pics in the link I Posted. That is what this Zephyr looks like if you mount those onto it. I also am including a second stock monitor mount for if you want to mount the WHM-BG Horizon Level onto the back as he has in the picture. Asking $6750. Let me know if your interested.
  15. There doesn't seem to be a mounting point for an additional battery hanger on the Aero, this must not be possible on it? This is pretty important for flying any heavier cameras as they are simply too heavy for the rig if the battery is attached to the camera itself.
  16. Quick question, this may be an obvious one is probably due to my lack of knowledge about dynamic balance, but with the Zephyr, after achieving dynamic balance and flipping into low mode with the low mode bracket, how do I maintain dynamic balance when I need to adjust the monitor in order to see it? Would I just need to re-do the whole process? Thanks!
  17. This is probably well past your shoot date at this point, but yes you could fly this setup, as long as you strip the epic down cage wise, I've been doing an epic with a summilux, lmb-25, 2 motor fiz setup, with teradek and it's been working out fine with one to two filters in. I believe the kowa's are no heavier than summilux's if not a little lighter but I could be mistaken.
